Whatcha Working on Wednesday

Hi girls,
Today, I was driving my car when I saw in front of the TS these pieces: ladder back stools and chair. Automatically, I made a turn to the right and stop my car to verify them. The owner said " you can take them for $5.00 /ea". They are in pretty good shape.
As soon, I returned to my house, I started the makeover process for the stools.

These are the pic's now,
Also, I found four gameboards for $5.00.

Sanded a little bit and stained to give an old look.
Today is Whatcha Working on Wednesday! at Leslie's blog, My Country Home. See what girls are participating today.
Bye, bye and see you soon.... Evelyn

New makeover , GW finds and other goodies

Hi girls,

As you know, I was moved recently and my new house had a breakfast nook area .... but guess what, I only have a table and I put it on the dinning area. After my moving, one of my friends gave me 3 new "old chairs" that she had. They are antiques with more than 104 years old.
They are beautiful. I love them!!!!

Last Thursday, I returned to my home and I can't wait to start with "TS shooping". During my first day "thrifting", I found the following pieces ( see below).

Finally, a table to used with the old chairs. Here is the table before,
And now,

What do you think about my last makeover??? And the best is the price only...... $15.00.

Also, I found two new crocks ($3.00 and $8.00 respectively), a candlestick from Williamsburg Pottery ($2.89) , a old Ball Jar ($4.00), a wood bowl rack ($2.39) and a pineapple for 49 cents.


Also, I want to say thank you to Kareen and Vicki, for the first giveaway that I won and my Textile swap goodies respectively. I need to say sorry to you due to my pictures came too late, due to my vacations. First, I receive this beautiful wool on cotton pillow from Kareen http://thepaintedquilt.blogspot.com . I display it in my family room. Love it!!! Thank you, Thank You ... Amazing Job!! These pictures definitely don't do it justice. It is really awesome.

And this is the gift box that I received from Char's Textile Swap. My box arrived on time , but I was out ( until this week, I was thinking in the goodies inside the box ). I was so surprised by the beautiful things that I received from my swap partner Vicki Hardcastle, she is a Fiber artist from Hardcastle Folk Art & Eureka Springs Rug Hooking Camp, http://thehogscaldholler.blogspot.com.

Thank you so much!!!! Can't wait to display my new goodies around my house.

Sorry for the long post, I hope you enjoy it...
Bye, bye and see you soon girls,
